Here's a pic of them on an SRX:

I can do about $200 or so lower than this, but mainly, what do you think this would look like on the V? It's 20x8.5 & made for the SRX.

I don't know yet what the deal would be on the TPS issue, but I'm trying to decide between something different, like this wheel, or the GM Optional wheels.

Thanks for you opinions.

Dave.

I have a platinum also and almost everyone I talk to says no to the chrome. Personally, I go back and forth. Lindsay is getting a group buy together for the GM optional wheels and we need a fourth to get the price break. I think (hope) the polished look of the GM wheels would be the right contrast.Marty

Yep, that's a big reason I'm trying to decide asap, if I go GM, I'd like to hop on to the Lindsay deal .. just having decision issues.

I do like keeping the run-craps & rotating ability I would have with the GM's too, as mine's a commuter.

These others are different which I like ... I just dunno, whine, whine, argh.

Those are junk. Please don't put those on your V.

Yea I know they're on ebay as well, you can get that price though pretty easy, I think wheels for the V are ao specialized that selling a set would be very very tough .. other than the stockers, or maybe the option wheels. Another argument for the GM Option wheels.

I like the stockers but they are pretty bland IMHO & I'm a longtime mustang guy, really into making the car a little different & wheels are one of those things. I'd do the CCW's in a heartbeat, but can't afford them.

Hmmm, but it seems the verdict on these is becomming pretty clear.

I don't know if anyone likes them, but GM parts direct has about 5 or 6 sets of rims on their website in sizes 18 and 20 that supposedly fit the V.

I noticed that too, Urb. I'll bet they can get them for the V though, as they are forged rims, I believe. I check with their site pretty often, and these were added into the V section just recently. Maybe I'll email them and post if they're available:thumbsup:

Wow, I like a couple of those, if they have a fit, that'd be very cool.

Thanks for that info!!!!

Got an email back from GMPD this morning, and they won't fit anyway.

Well here, they 20" so probably not very light.

Mass rotation center blah blah (engineers feel free to fill in the blanks)

Slow down your car.

I think its a nice pair of rims for an excalade or Hummer.

But for the V?

I donno personally I feel it cheapens the look of that car.

Ahh man, I sent an email but didn't get an answer .. that's a bummer, I really like this look.

Oh well, it seems like all roads lead to the original GM optional wheel, hmm.
